An excellent value in hyper-expensive Oslo, but not the best place to meet people. Only about a kilometer walk from the bus/train station. (You don't need a tram but you do need a map.) No central guest kitchen, only a kitchenette in each room (with no cooking supplies). Hostel occupies a big, modern, ultra-clean hotel building. No real hostel breakfast; they just send you to a restaurant a block away.
Easy to reach on foot or by public transport. Reception friendly and helpful. Pleased with clean room and powerful hot shower. Nice quiet room, slept well. Would ask that you reword travel directions from airport, they imply the only way to get to Oslo centre is by airport train service, which is not so. The regular train only takes 3 minutes longer but was 80NOK cheaper!

No good common area, only the recption area. No kitchen area. No lockers in the room. Shower in the room wasn't the clean.
This place isn't as bad as a lot of the reviews make it sound. It's exactly what it is, the cheapest place to stay in downtown Oslo. Location is excellent, the room was clean and comfy enough. Great place to stay id trying to do Oslo on a budget
The hostel is very good, The room's floor isn't so clean, the bathroom is very good, with heat system for the floor. The hostel isn't so far from the town.
Expensive, plus you have to keep paying for stuff I normally expect to be included, like linen. I stayed in an 8 bedroom dorm, and the cooking area was in the dorm room which I found strange. Room was very stuffy. Glad I only stayed here one night
Fantastic atmosphere, very helpful staff and cleaners. The only thong that I was not that much fond of was too small common room. Aha, take cutleries and towels with you otherwise you'll have to pay but reasonably.
